    A warning to our Old Poets Society critics.
    (in the form of a 'Tipperary')

    SOL's poets for posterity
    Write rhymes with great sincerity,
    And though their muse may seem obtuse
    With purpose simply to amuse,
    Mockers will be dealt with…
    with great severity!

    About horthes furthest northest.

    A horth is a horth of course off course
    Off course, up north, oh dear, that's worse
    These ditties have to rhyme you see
    At least so said old Hank Hain-ey
    And Mr Ed spoke too and said "Agree-gh"

  • Seven Seas of Asia
    Board » Sailonline Race Committee » Race proposals
    And here's another proposal from bonknhoot.
    Seven Seas of Asia.
    Not oceans (even though The Seven Seas are oceans).
    So not quite ocean racing, but long challenging races nonetheless in all sorts of climates and weather patterns.
    Apologies not quite the precision of kmz files, but enough info for OPS to create a course from.

  • Re: Santa Monica Nueva Regatta
    Board » Sailonline Race Committee » Race proposals
    Yep, Dan, that's another option and I agree with you on all points:
    - hate marks in the sea
    - more people using routing
    AND importantly
    - Qt Vlm router now uses 'SOL' interpolation (u/v), so wind in router matches wind in SOL exactly.

    So many words said, what can I add? We will miss you, Finn, your always good humour and matter-of-fact approach to life, and all the working together on set-ups, particulars, race descriptions, time lapses and all the rest. In your memory we plan to race a PYOC from Copenhagen to Svendborg. We will all think and talk of you more then. An announcement will be appearing soon.

  • Santa Monica Nueva Regatta
    Board » Sailonline Race Committee » Race proposals
    I think the bottle of Ron Miel has fallen by the wayside at this stage, so why not rename this iconic race Nueva, and take the opportunity to make some course changes for longer legs and more strategic choices and less processional races, as per the attached and set up here on the Beta: http://beta.sailonline.org/breezy/run/987/

Current Races:

The Three Kings Race 2022
The Three Kings Offshore Race is a 520 nm challenge, in Farr 38s, from Auckland (Orakei) up and around the Three Kings Islands and then back to Auckland finishing where you started. Manawa Islands (Three Kings) are a group of 13 uninhabited islands about 25 nm northwest of Te Rerenga Wairua aka Cape Reinga. They're also about 250nm due north of Auckland, known also as the world's best diving and fishing locations (although hopefully, you won’t be fishing too much during the race, or diving for that matter) and it is just a beautiful yet rugged place that is a must see for anyone who loves the oceans.

Stockholm to St Petersburg 2022
Are you ready to race this course of about 431nm across the Baltic and into the Gulf of Finland, from one great historic city Stockholm to another St Petersburg?
The Gulf of Finland is still ice‑free, so board your J‑122s and prepare. Take care and keep a weather eye. The odd stray submarine or ice‑breaker may need to be avoided.
